Fifth day of life.
Today was fairly uneventful. Miss Isabel decided to be awake again last night, which was actually pretty wonderful. She woke and ate around 1:30, then woke again around 3:30 and was up for about an hour and a half. We went into Milla’s room to hang out because Milla has some pretty butterfly lights she leaves on at night. The light in her room is cozy and warm, perfect for a middle of the night Mama/Daughter hangout. Isabel cooed and kicked, waved her arms, stretched her neck, and looked directly at me, practicing using her eyes. Long-legged Milla snuggled next to us, the dog at the foot of the bed. It was a most pleasant manner in which to spend the darkened hours.
Once we went back to bed, Isabel awoke again around 7 for some milky, then fell promptly asleep until 11. We both slept until 11 actually. When she woke up she stayed awake for several hours. We went for a quick visit to the store and she slept the entire time in the front-pack carrier. We also had 2 visitors. My friend Rita came for an hour at 2 and my friend Kathleen came for a couple of hours at 6. Both times she slept through the visits except to have a small bit of milk. I guess those long stretches of being awake just wore her out.
Seriously? I am in love. I know I have said it before, but it is true. Baby bliss is truly blissful and amazing. I love it.
